None of us know exactly how we are going to die, but if I had to take a guess now it would be that I'll get crushed to death under a pile of unread books.
For some, their electronics are more intimate companions than those flesh and blood beings with whom they share their lives. Smart phones, tablets, laptops and Kindles are cuddled closer to bodies than human loved ones.
My point is, you can now read whatever you want and no one needs to know.
Ho ho ho-ly crap, as if it's Christmas again! Just like clockwork, every year Christmas comes around, and with it the impeding dread (or is that just ...
Drink snobs should drink up. This cocktail kit describes exactly what it does: it's a toolkit for boozing it up. It's actually not the greatest gadget on the planet but it is definitely the perfect gadget for adding a little bit of spice to the holidays... and your plane flight.
Bruce, I forgot about him. Haven't had the pleasure of his company since drone strikes became popular. He comes to play darts owning dental challenges and a Christian conscience.
